The Science Fiction and Fantasy Rosetta Awards is a new award created by the end of 2020, and describes itself as “initiated and organized by a group of SFF enthusiasts with faith to promote and recognize the SFF literatures from various cultures and languages along with the efforts of those authors and translators”. Our story “The Witch Dances”, published in Issue #000, has been one of six stories shortlisted in the short-form category!
We are incredibly happy for translator Iana A. and writer Thiago Ambrósio Lage for this huge accomplishment!
The winners will be announced in an award ceremony, the date and venue of which still haven’t been disclosed.
